Your Bespoke Guardians Swindon Wildcats are pleased to confirm our on-ice Leadership team for the 23/24 season!
Our captain, for the 4th consecutive season, is #13 Sam Bullas! Bully is back with the Wildcats this season in what will be his 14th season in the Red and White, bringing back with him an incredible amount of experience, knowledge as well as his impressively consistent abilities on the ice.
Here’s your first words from Sam Bullas as the Captain of your 23/24 Swindon Wildcats team! – “First of all I just wanted to say how proud I am to once again be named Captain of this Wildcats, since joining in 2009 I’ve enjoyed every minute of my time here and it was great to be back in action at the Better Link Centre on Saturday night. Secondly, I’m massively looking forward to the season ahead, we’ve got a great bunch of guys here and we’re all working towards the same thing – bringing silverware back to Swindon.”
To team up with Sam Bullas, our first Assistant Captain is… #24 Tyler Plews! Plewsey has been with us from 2018, already icing in more than 200 competitive games as a Wildcat in that time. Last season was Tyler’s first with a letter on his jersey and he didn’t disappoint, picking up 19 points in the 22-23 season to go along with his strong defensive ability and his team first mentality.
Last but not least, our leadership team will once again be rounded out by #11 Chris Jones! Like Tyler, Chris donned an A on his jersey for the first-time last season, taking to the new role extremely well as he logged the second highest points total of his career with 28 goals and 36 assists in just 52 games!
Head Coach Aaron Nell was pleased to confirm the captaincy for the 23/24 season – “All 3 of these guys are huge parts of our team and have been for several years now. They know what it takes to win and they’re eager to lift more trophies – we all are. I couldn’t ask for much more from a set of Captains and it was an easy decision for me to make.”
This weekend we’re doing something special to tie in with this announcement… you can win #13 Sam Bullas, #24 Tyler Plews and #11 Chris Jones’ red jerseys from our opening pre-season weekend – in a Triple Shirt Off the Back at this Saturday’s game! So make sure you grab your SOTB tickets, because you have to be in it to win it!
